Made a trip looking for certain things and saw a mark. Always check the marks since im still looking for a w3z2. Pulled it down. W3z3. Damn.
So I'm looking over the car. Painted calipers. No big deal. Lincoln motorsport sticker in back window. now I'm intrigued. Crawl under. 2.5" duals with...
especially when they have a 50% off everything day:D
93 engine assy with a near perfect oil pan (no rust. just a couple slight dents from when they put the car on the stands.) took just over 2 hours to pull out the top on my back with only hand tools. much easier than i expected.
got my hands on the 93 driveshaft from the u pull it today. 20 minutes and 25 bucks later and im walking out with a nice clean one piece shaft. gonna put it on my car and see if i notice any difference. with the 3.55s i got a bit of vibes right around 100. nothing bad but its there.
got 13 runs in tonight. track was glass but air was nice and cold.
i had 7 others in 14.4x range with 2 at 14.41
i was just hoping for another 2.19 60' but it wasnt gonna happen with these temps and no VHT to...
came into the shop the other day. nobody wanted to tackle the oil filter adapter gasket so i took it. flat rate 3 hours took about 45 minutes. never done 1 before. learned some tricks. itll be much easier next time. LOL.
car looked decent but was in bad shape. front bags leaking. diff...
got 18 runs in 2 hours on streetcar night at portland raceway....it was dead.
new best 60' and new best ET. trap was down 3mph from my runs in hawaii though. wierd considering it was 30* cooler here
i ended up running 13 14.7xx ETs at 94-95 mph.
best 60' is now a 2.182 that netted...
in 5 hours.
gonna head down to sacramento tomorrow morning. spend a couple days down there. work on a friends car. put 2k miles on my mark in 4 days. fun fun.
vancouver, wa to sac, ca non-stop. yay for long drives. gonna stock up on red bull in the morning
just checking my options at the momet. i wont be able to get 1 for a week or 2.
any ideas on availability or pricing? with or without gears dont matter. im no longer in hawaii so shipping shouldnt be too bad for me now.
i know....i just dont have the time right now an my mark hasnt been shipped out from hawaii yet.
will a 17x10.5 or at least a 17x9 fit under the back? can i squeeze 17x9s up front?
yes...im thinking of running 03 cobra wheels. (painted. not chrome)
yes....i now live in the northwest. just a couple days ago someone in a 2nd gen white mark8 apparantly lost control and took out a jogger. the guy didnt make it. died the next day.
right door and fender very badly damaged.
sad to hear.
ive been looking for the part # and all ive found is YR3Z-8501-AB
in the computer this is called the "tall housing" but it comes up when searched under 99 cobra.
will this fit the mark pulley alignment wise?
the marks pump come sup as YW7Z-8501-aa
got to the track again. this time it wasnt that great. the air temp was 98 and i never really got a chance to let the car cool down.
the jmod did help. with the temps being this high i could tell the car was laying down. anyways...best time was a 14.666@97 with a 2.37 60'
this was after 20...
